I have to confess, I'm struggling to make cards these days!  My heart really isn't in it at the moment and despite needing several graduation cards this year, I've only just managed to make this one!  That said, I love these Pink Gem Topper Kits, and have relied on them several times this year when my motivation has left me!

So today's card is for the latest MAWTT challenge, which, if you haven't guessed by now, has the theme on...

Food & Drink

Don't know where the last two weeks have gone, but here we are at the start of another new Ooh La La challenge, and Jane is asking us to follow the theme of;

Food & Drink

So I have made this male card using files off the lovely Paula Oakley Collection CD.

Something Beginning with "B"

Another DT project today and it's back to working with Ooh La La Cd's.  This time it's Deloris hosting and she is asking us to include;

Something Beginning With "B" 

On our projects.

So after flicking through several files, I decided on this beauty from the Shawn Jenkins Collection. So my "B's" would be;

Birthday / Blue / Boat / Bottles and ball of string!!!

Hi everyone, I'm the hostess this time at MAWTT and today I have chosen


as my theme.  There are so many gorgeous fairies out there, so the problem this challenge is deciding which to use.  Again I've gone with a super sweet Wee Stamp image all ready coloured. and paired her with some old papers, and a fancy die.

I was really pleased with how well the colours on this one matched - not always that easy with pre coloured stamps, but today it was possible with the papers I had.

Christmas Cuties

This hasn't happened in a very long time! Two posts from me in the same day! Can't quite believe it myself actually but here is the proof, a second card and this time its a Christmas card!

And the reason for the second post, is that I was lucky enough to be asked by Lisa at the Christmas With The Cuties if I'd like to guest design.  Clearly the answer was yes and the card below was made following their current theme of,
So, initially my card was going to just feature holly, but in a last minute switch this Christmas Cutie was purchased from Wee Stamps as I thought she filled the challenge better!

Papers are oldies from a few years back, I think by Fancy Pants but to be honest I'm not sure!

Get Well Wishes

Today it's Wynn at the helm of the Ooh La La challenge and she has set our theme as

Get Well Wishes

It's always lovely to receive a hand made card - but even more lovely when you are under the weather.

So for my card I used this image from The Shawn Jenkins Collection with matching papers.  This time the sentiment is off a Pink Gem topper sheet - it matched the card and was looking for a home!

Today's challenge over at Ooh La La has been chosen by Pauline and she has gone with


So me thinks we will have lots of entries this time!

For my card I went to the Paula Oakley CD and grabbed this image of kiddy shoes all pretty in pink candy stripes!  As always the image and the papers are straight from the CD file - all colour matched and ready to use!

Furry Friends

I've made so many cards with the Pink Gem kits lately, and never seem to post any in challenges, so today, as a card I made for my niece's birthday fits the Pink Gem Challenge I've decided to post it!

Pink Gem - Furry Friends

Spring Chickens

I've been messing about trying to finish this card for weeks now and eventually managed to piece it together this morning.  It uses a super Di's Digi and some of my favourite MME papers.

Into The Woods

Almost the end of March, soon there will be leaves on the trees again and Winter will be behind us.  I made this card however last month, on a wet weekend when the trees were bare and Summer a long way off!

What isn't a long way off however is the next challenge over at MAWTT, chosen by Terrie and she's asking for projects relating to the theme...

Into The Woods.

Now initially I was going to do a woodland creature on my card, but as I rummaged through my real stamps, I came upon this stamp again - it's very simple but I do love it!

So the ink dusters and distress inks came out along with Papermania Capsule Collection papers, and the end result is above!
